"Covetousness"有關的其他問題

Q: When covetousness generally prevails, when every man is for what he can get and for keeping what he has, this makes men dangerous to one another, and obliges every man to stand on his guard against his neighbour.
-the part I don't understand is "when every man is (for) what he can get and (for) keeping what he has, what does the "for" in this sentence mean?
A: It's an idiom: 'He's all for what he can get' means that he is mercenary and only cares about money/material possessions.'

I'm not 100% sure, but I think the 'for' is the same one from for/against, making the meaning of the sentence something like 'he believes in what he can get' or 'he supports what he can get'
